When the going gets TOF ...
Tofwerk develops custom time-of-flight mass spectrometers (TOFMS) and ion mobility spectrometers (IMS) for industrial, government, and academic research labs around the globe.
Our TOFMS are the fastest in the world, acquiring and saving up to 100'000 unique mass spectra per second!
- For Beginners -
Mass spectrometers are used in R&D and quality control to analyze the chemical composition of solid, liquid, gaseous and plasma samples.
There are many types of mass spectrometers. All are based on observing the motion of charged, gas-phase molecules in electric or magnetic fields.
Time-of-flight mass spectrometers (also called TOF, TOFMS, TOF-MS), identify molecules by measuring the time it takes them to travel across a fixed distance -- much like timing runners in a race around a track. Learn more.
